Europe’s Biggest Business Software Developer         Aligns Itself With Sun’s J2EE Platf
Europe’s Biggest Business Software Developer         Aligns Itself With Sun’s J2EE Platf

(October 30, 2001) - The rumor mills in Walldorf, Germany, are busily turning. Hasso Plattner and Henning Kagermann, the co-Chairmen and co-CEOs of Europe’s largest software vendor, SAP, are apparently all set to announce that SAP is going to come out in favor of Java.

When a world-leading provider of enterprise resource planning software used to integrate back-office functions such as distribution, accounting, human resources, and manufacturing makes a decision like this, the world sits up and pays attention, since more than 13,500 companies use SAP software.

That means 13,500 companies will through SAP learn that the company deems J2EE superior to .NET, a major blow to Microsoft if the announcement goes ahead next week. JavaDevelopersJournal.com is currently waiting for confirmation from tight-lipped SAP company officers.

Attention will now naturally turn to see what the software company Commerce One does about J2EE vs .NET, since SAP has a one-fifth equity stake in Pleasanton, California-based Commerce One, which is in its own right a leading provider of software and services for creating electronic marketplaces that connect buyers and sellers.
